action. however, that was before israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu spoke to the u.n. general assembly a short time ago complete with a unique visual aid. nbc's mike viqueira joins us live from the white house. mike, mr. netanyahu today said he's in ongoing discussion with the u.s. over exactly when and where to draw this so-called red line. mike, has anyone at the white house confirmed or denied that to you? >> reporter: no, the last we heard is no deadlines, no red lines. this has been an ongoing controversy. it bubbled up again a couple weeks ago and prime minister netanyahu once again called for a red line. as u.n. speeches go, there's nikita chew she have, yasser arafat, wile a lot of people have been deriding this prop that prime minister netanyahu is using today as sort of a cartoon initial roadrunner and coyote sort of cartoonish bomb he used as a prop, it's a deadly serious issue. there are some things the united states and prime minister netanyahu agree on, and this is iran is enriching uranium. they both agree that iran cannot be allowed to develop a nuclear bomb. w
. >>> today the u.n. general assembly will hear from iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad. it's his last time addressing the body before hitting his term limits. they're urging delegates to protest the speech and boycotts are outside. maria is live. every time we hear him rant, are we giving this guy attention. >> reporter: forgive me if i don't answer your question. we're having a few construction problems. ahmadinejad is expected to be 16 of 17 speakers. of course, as is often the case when he's here in new york, there will be large protests taking place outside the u.n. those are scheduled to take place at 11:00 a.m. and we skpeerkted to hear from high-profile speakers like rudy giuliani and mayor bloomberg. he's essentially a lame-duck president, finishing up the second of his two-four-year terms. now, just to get a little bit of insight into what we might here, president ahmadinejad gave a wide-ranging interview yesterday. one of the key issues here, of course, is iran's nuclear ambitions, and he's described it as a non-issue, characterizing it as something that the u.s. was bringing up
the president for what he said at the u.n. and talking about how we are in sync. our intelligence and military communities are on the same it timeline with respect to iranian nuclear development. and i think yesterday the president -- prime minister netanyahu drew a line which frankly the president has already drawn not with a cartoon and with that kind of a fdispla but the president has said point blank american policy is not a matter of containment, it is a matter of prevention. they will not have the ability to make a bomb. and the president is prepared to back that up. so, there is no gap here. and once again, mitt romney just as he did when he stepped out early in his comments on libya, inappropriately and wrong, he is once again inappropriately and wrongly characterizing the president's policy. >> john kerry, all fired up for debate preparation, have fun with that. >> thank you. >> have fun playing mitt romney and thank you so much. thanks for being with us today. >> thank you. >>> and up next here, israel's red line on iran. have we reached the point of no return? when will we? this is
domestic concerns to the side for a time this week. the president on tuesday addressing the u.n.'s general assembly meeting. the middle east and the threat posed by iran's nuclear weapons program topped the agenda there. after his speech, the president had no follow-up meetings with foreign leaders, not even with the leader of our closest ally in the middle east, israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. prime minister netanyahu addressed the assembly thursday. and he famously used that image of a bomb with a lit fuse to make the point that iran cannot be allowed to make a nuclear weapon. >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. >> joining me now, mark regev, the chief spokesperson for prime minister netanyahu. good saturday afternoon to you, sir. thank you for coming back. >> my pleasure. >> governor romney spoke with the prime minister by phone on friday after the call. governor romney spoke with reporters about possible action against iran. take a listen, and i want to talk to you about his response on the other side. >> i do not belief that in the
